Have you met my friend Hannah?

Have you met my friend Hannah?

It’s always interesting to observe how different companies do business. Strange thing is while everyone is different they all undertake a large number of similar, repetitive tasks that impact on their efficiency and profitability. Why can’t we create smarter business by simplifying or removing these tasks?

“It’s funny, really, when Hannah was being trialled by one british business they reckoned she could recover 30 hours a week, per employee. That’s insane!”

Whale has a creative solution to a problem no one really knew existed! Whale founded the New Zealand business group Terrible and has spent years secretly working on a computer system that can learn, evaluate situations and create solutions. Put simply it allows you to off-load those repetitive tasks; including those that you thought demanded human involvement.

“I want you to imagine that your staff would work for you, could perform for you; but never get sick, never complain and never fail! Hannah does exactly that; she’s a machine that learns things. Almost anything you do on a monitor she could do.”

Says whale on the implications of Hannah to business owners. Hannah was originally created to solve whale’s own management and task augmentation issues during his tenure at RedDog. Currently Whale and his business partners are experimenting with Hannah in the Recruitment, Property management and Customer support industries. Although she could ‘look after’ much more.
